Writing in Colours

Painting a Country

Sunshine fills painter Roger Ricard’s studio. The double doors, with glass panes painted by the artist, open to a coloured explosion of paintings upon paintings with vibrant scenes as heart-warming as a tight embrace in the heart of winter.

With either his landscapes or his fanciful interiors, Roger Ricard invites us into a dreamlike universe filled with fantasy, joy and humour. An experienced painter who is celebrating his 50th year of career, his artistic signature features vivid colours, fluid movements, rhythm of lines and a balanced composition in shapes as much as in tonalities. He is an instinctive artist who interprets his subjects and exaggerates the aspects he loves. “What I paint is not real, it comes from my imagination,” says the artist, which is part of the reason why admiring his works procures such a great feeling.
